Personally, I cannot abide that posh talking weasel. Full of wind and piss IMHO
Perfectly logical as he is a staunch, practising catholic. But he really is a frightful ass as well.
I don’t like his politics but his self-presentation and courteous manner set him apart from really frightful specimens like Boris Johnson and gruesome windbags like David Davies with his pantomime spectacles and lounge-bar bon-homie.
Nanny obviously did a good job on the manners front - you are quite right about Boris and DD.
He seems - for all that I agree with him on many topics - to be the current equivalent of John Redwood. Adds a bit of colour, don’t you think?
I like him as he is true to his beliefs which ought to stop him from ever reaching high office.
Astute comment with which, perhaps, to wind up the thread…?
